    highly recommended for people who want to learn about how movies are made.

    As an adult I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the movie making process and about the lives of the people in each job of making a movie. I think this would be great for kids too who are into making movies and want to learn about all the jobs that go into making a movie.

    Companion and memory enhancer to Hugo movie

    This Christmas I purchased this book for my grandson after "The Invention of Hugo Caberet" book was delayed past Christmas delivery. Our family attended the Hugo movie on the Wednesday after Christmas as a family event to tie with the delight of my granddaughter who received "Wonderstruck" by the same author as this and the above Hugo book given to my grandson, but not received in time. We used the "Hugo Movie Companion" as a guide after the movie to discuss the events in the movie. The pictures tied in well to the movie, covering many production and story development issues and events. I only had a short itme to look at the book before my grandkids left for home far away, so my comments are brief. Yet the quick look was enough to convince me that this book was a good value and very interesting so I am ordering another copy for me. My grandson is very interested in how things work, so this book and movie helped draw upon this interest to maybe guide him in his education and future. I am an engineer, so seeing this develop in someone at a young age makes me proud. Hopefully it will help many others to choose to develop interests in mathematics, science, engineering, or mechanics. This book will work for very young children as a book to read to them while looking at the many pictures, and is best if done with a viewing of the movie. The plans for getting the DVD when available are already made. Enjoy!

    Great follow-up to the original book!

    After reading the Invention of Hugo Cabret with my 8 and 5 year old grandsons, we then were able to see how a book was turned into a movie by reading sections of "The Hugo Movie Companion". What a fun way to expand children's minds. While some portions of the "Companion" were beyond the years of my grandsons, they understood many aspects of the complexity of how a wonderfully illustrated book can evolve into a movie with real characters. We are now, anxiously looking forward to seeing the 3D movie together!
